Given widespread media attention to issues of crime and its
prevention, police heroism, and new modes of police-community
involvements, this international collection is timely. It is unique in
examining ways in which police and citizens communicate across a range
of contexts and problem areas. While much attention is afforded the
critical roles of communication by police agencies, there has been
little recourse to communication science and its theories. Likewise,
the latter has not, until recently, concerned itself with analyzing
police-citizen interactions. This volume examines the character of
such encounters, forging new theoretical frameworks having
implications for practice in many instances. Topics include media
portrayals of law enforcement, communication and new technologies
within police culture, domestic violence, hate crimes, stalking,
sexual abuse, and hostage negotiations. This book should be relevant
not only to a range of social sciences besides Communication scholars
and students, but also to practitioners working in the field.
